My initial symptom was ear pain. I was getting recurrent earaches. My general doctor treated me for ear infections, but the pain kept coming back. No, it was not constant. He finally sent me to an ear-nose-throat specialist, who could find nothing wrong with my ears. He put a finger in my ear and pressed forward on the jaw joint, and I about
came off the floor with pain! So that was how I was diagnosed.
TMJ pain can come and go, be better or worse depending on your activities, your posture, your stress level -- lots of things.
